Greetings friends of new listeners and welcome to the sound the faith. I'm sure not thanking you for joining us today because we know comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Today's messages part two of a three-part theories I did on Genesis.
The re-creation of heaven and earth. In part two we discussed days to three and four in this exciting account, we discover the greenhouse effect the earth once enjoyed to do to a canopy of waters that protected it. We will also learn about the zodiac. How it declares the gospel and how it has been corrupted in the Genesis theories part two were going to go right into the word this morning a little short on time and I have a lot of material to give to you today. We got a lot of good feedback from last Sunday's message and we discussed what happened on the recreation of the earth. We talked about how that God created it from scratch, but then it became a chaotic wasteland.
We talked about how that Lucifer's fall plunge the earth into such a chaotic condition that it was nothing but a vast area covered in darkness and water and we learned how that the Spirit of God hovered over the water dividing the darkness from the light calling it night and day and we learned that there was a big gap between verse one of Genesis 1 and verse two of Genesis 1 that between the initial creation of the earth. In verse one there was a chaotic tumultuous calamitous event. When Lucifer fell, and then God re-created the earth.
In verse two were going to continue in Genesis 1 today and I don't know how many days will cover but were going to begin today. Genesis chapter 1 verses six through eight and God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so.
And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. So let's stop here. The firmament, the Hebrew word is rocky and it means a vast expanse in the heavens that held like a canopy or a great blanket of water, a band of water was being held up by this firmament that God called heaven now want you to think about this for a minute and try to visualize imagery in your mind, so we had this advanced blanket or canopy of waters being held up by die which we would be able to see a man now. This would serve as a global greenhouse for the earth, and how many know what a greenhouse does it has an even warm temperature even in the winter time, you can grow tomatoes and flowers and such. Amen. And so if the earth had this greenhouse of by these waters that were being held up by this firmament, then that means that that Earth would have a uniform warm temperature on the whole globe answer without a variation in temperatures we wouldn't have wind, we wouldn't have wind and in that case, because we wouldn't have wind, we wouldn't have rain there would be no cycle of rain. However, because of the greenhouse effect there would be evaporation and condensation evaporation and condensation and what that would do is, it would result in due forming on the ground and that would bring forth a lush tropical vegetation all over the planet, so this blanket of waters would also filter out the ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
The cosmic rays that bombard us all the time now causing mutations in the gene pool, causing us to see that many people get skin cancer and other cancers from the ultraviolet rays.
Therefore, if there was this blanket of waters, filtering out those rays. We wouldn't have the gene mutations, we wouldn't have the ultraviolet rays in the cosmic rays beaming down on us, and there would be a long lifespan there would be longevity of life that would be what would happen when that canopy of waters existed. However, this huge humongous canopy of waters would also provide an enormous and incalculable amount of water needed if there was ever going to be a worldwide global flood. Now there are many verses throughout your Old Testament that speak about the firmament and out quickly just give you some of them. In Job there are a lot of verses about the creation, even God speaking in the first person that he was after Joe pain show where were you when I created, and then God goes through a lot of things that happened but we read that it says that God spread out they had been and that would be in Job 98 and Job 3718. In Psalm 1042 says God covers himself with light as a garment and he stretches out the heavens like a curtain.
That's why I like to use the word canopy. Think of that curtain that's holding up all this water. Psalm 136 six says to him that stretched out the earth above the waters. Psalm 148 for praise him, you heavens and you waters that be above the heavens. Isaiah 4022 God sits upon the circle of the earth that stretches the heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a tent again that ideal of a canopy. I like the fact that it said God sits on the circle of the earth do you know that there are people today that belong to the flat earth society. I mean, I can understand that back then if they had a flat earth society. But today, and using don't you see all the pictures from space. Not all that's all rigged by the government. But the Bible tells us that the earth was a circle amen because you write here, God sits upon it.
Amen. Isaiah 4813 my hand has also laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand is band that heavens. I like this when I call under them, they stand out. You know that fits in with my message and brought it out a lot last week that I just spoke and his voice went out and gathered the atoms and brought everything together and created whatever he said. Jeremiah 1012 he is made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom and his stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
Another words by his understanding God had a purpose in making this canopy of water. All of the things I just mentioned about the greenhouse effect it would have been upon the earth because when God created the earth. He made it such a beautiful beautiful planet.
Amen. Job 26 seven. He stretches out the north over the empty place and hangs upon nothing. I really like this one. It goes right in with what I preach last week from Genesis where it says and the earth was void and without form, remember I gave you the Hebrew words, what were they told who both who that's easy to remember. Saito, who both who see you speak Hebrew now so it meant he was avoiding empty place covered with darkness and water. But God stretched out over that empty place. He stretched out the heavens. Amen.
Where it says edit hangs upon nothing.
Okay, so how is the earth hanging upon nothing.
Oh, this is another one of my favorite verses I gave you last week. We know in Hebrews 11 three.
It says he created everything by the word of his power. What is the Greek word for word. Thank you frame the spoken word and then I told you. Hebrews 13 says, he not only created by frame of the spoken word body up holds it by the regime spoken word of his power, we just gotta try to get this idea in our little puny minds.
They spoke it was created and now all of these. What I don't know.
Millennia later, we don't know how much later for sure, but there's still here in his word and are still being hung there by his word and when I read this here in Job because he hung it on nothing because the nothing is something it's not something visible but it is spoken word. They still hear him speaking and they stay in their orbits the earth doesn't move. I have a degree one way or the other if it did, we need to be a fireball or nice ball and life on earth would be inhabitable, but he spoke them where to go and they still here that command, and they stay right where they belong. So here I have a question what happened to this canopy to this curtain this thing that God created on day to what happened in this that was holding up all those waters because we know the earth is not moderately warm all over. Is it I mean think Siberia. Amen. So we do have window the earth do we not all yes we now have winds sometimes we have great with in the form of typhoons and cyclones and tornadoes and hurricanes. Amen. And there are places on the earth where there is no vegetation. It's just dirt or sand. And we know that we are suffering now from the ultraviolet rays of the sun, especially people that lived below the equator and I'll even say this, you know, especially lighter skinned people have to be more careful. Like for instance on the continent of Australia. They have a lot of skin cancer there. I mean very high percentage of skin cancer because of the fair skinned people getting all that light. Amen. And I know myself.
I do not dare go out without high SPF one because I had a little spot on my nose and I didn't know what he was was like a scale that just never went away and exfoliated always come back and I finally went to see about it and they told me it wasn't cancer but it was like pre-cancer but they removed it and you know you can even tell it, but so now you know that dermatologist said don't you dare go outside without SPF on he told me you know I need to cover everything. I thought you know I gotta get a little bit of sons of your body can get some vitamin D. Amen. But I'm very cognizant of this and we know the human gene poll is been marred with disease and there are shortened lifespans. Man does not live anywhere near the tie after creation. I had through that question out there and before we answer it turn in chapter 2 of Genesis and let's look at verse four. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens and every plant of the field before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground, but there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground so we learn here. There was no rain. When God created them and put them in the garden to till the garden take care of it. Never saw a rain and it did not rain for 1656 years.
Let me show you when it rained turn in the Genesis chapter 7 and look at verse 11 in the sixth hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the 17th day of the month the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven were opened and the rain was upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights.
The first mention of rain in the Bible is right here because not only were the fountains of the deep in the water in the oceans God released fountains of water shooting up but he said the windows of heaven were opened and God pulled back those curtains. Let's look at chapter 8 verse one and God remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with them in the ark and God made a wind to pass over the earth and the waters a sewage. The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped and the rain from heaven was restrained, so this is what happened to that canopy of water that God created on day two, when he sent the flood in the time of Noah and the earth. The entire globe was covered in water. Amen. I mean covered like the depths of the ocean because simultaneously the deep, deep fountains in the seas released their water and at the same time God opened the heavens and allow that canopy to fall down on the earth. I can only think of one word inundation. Amen.
So that the earth was totally covered, and this meant that there was a global flood and in Tiger global flood that covered the entire globe, but to seal his promise. After he brought Noah and his family out of the ark. When finally the earth had dried enough for them to come out. God sealed the promise that he would never again release that kind of water on the earth for a global flood.
Oh, there are local floods but I'm talking about a global flood that destroyed every living thing. Go to chapter 9. Let's look at verse 11 and I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off anymore by the waters of a flood, neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said this is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you for perpetual generations. I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a token of the covenant between me and the earth, and it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth that the bow shall be seen in the cloud and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh, so God said, I'll never again destroy the entire earth with the flood. You know I have to imagine after you know Noah and his family were on the earth and begin to set up their home again go with Peter to a normal life and begin to plant food and such. I can imagine that the first time it rained here was probably rurally looking up there for that rainbow. Amen. Even if I think a Lord where is that rainbow. Amen.
It probably took a few times before they could relax and realize God keeps his promises and he was looking up there for those beautiful colors red and orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
The rainbow. The rainbow is God's token. Some people have taken it and corrupted it. Amen. But it belongs to God. We need to claim it back into his promise. Amen. And do you know that right after the flood.
The lifespan of man dropped 200 years right away.
It dropped 200 years and within four generations after that, it dropped another 200 years so we can see that the removal of that canopy of water and the loss of the greenhouse effect greatly influenced the earth and also we can assume that the flood probably did a lot of damage to the soil and probably caused it to lose a lot of its nutrients and I also say this because of the fact that God then told Noah here on you and your family can eat meat. Up until that time they were vegetarians. They ate no meat. How many knew that only after the flood.
Did they start eating meat because God understood. He knew that they had lost a lot of nutrients. Imagine all that water had the effect it would have had on the soil. Amen. And that's why they were allowed to eat meat after that. So that was what we see here that happened on day two will go back to Genesis 1 verse eight in the evening and the morning were the second day, so now let's go to verse nine and God said, let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.
And it was so. And God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of the waters called he seas using its plural there for the seas. And God saw that it was good. God saw that it was good. So by this time there is a lot more water on the earth than there was when God created it and I didn't check it but I believe that the earth is like 70% water.
Today it's about 70% water. The oceans and the seas. And God gathered them and separated them.
Amen. I like what God is asking Job okay Joe where you can you answer this question who shut up the sea with doors that means God put boundaries around the sea.
Job 2610. He surrounded the waters with boundaries.
Psalm 1049 you set a bound that they may not pass over so God put the seas in the oceans where he wanted them.
And he gave then verbal commands, you can go this far and no further. Amen. It's only when there is like a volcano that erupts under the water that then you get that tsunami effect and they overflow the land. Amen. But they have their boundaries so we did.
Verse 10 saying.
And God saw that it was good.
I want you to think about this. This is day three write. It was the third day, do we not see that and God said that it was good so if it's day three here and God so that it was good. It's only the second time that God said that.
Are you thinking about this a moment, day one God said, and it was good day to that was verse eight in the evening and the morning were the second day. Let's go on the day three God did not say and it was good.
On day two. Did you catch that. So why did he not say it was good.
On day two.
He said it was good on day one God said, let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light and it was good when we did.
Day two we don't see anything about insane. It was good but now were on day three and God says it was good. He didn't bless day two and say that it was good. So the question is why RM to give you one good answer. Ephesians 612 for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against this virtual wickedness in King James says high places, but the Greek means the heavens people radius the heavens in the heavens, whose ruling in the second heaven. Satan, we learned about his fall. He used to be Lucifer the beautiful covering cherub, but he fell and took one third of the angels with him.
We learned last week and now he's pulling in the second heaven. He's not going in the pit. He's going to the pit. Eventually, Revelation tell that he's going to get thrown in, but he's not there yet. Amen. I hope you are following us to this comprehensive study for my Genesis series part to the recreation days two through four. In this eye-opening account. We discussed the greenhouse effect of the firmament that once covered the earth, making it a virtual paradise with universal warm temperatures and lush vegetation before there was rain what happened to the firmament that altered this canopy of waters. You may be surprised to learn that day two is the only day, God did not speak of his handiwork, saying it is good.
Why find out who is entrenched in the heavens and why God did not bless this day.
The Bible forbids astrology and consulting the signs of the zodiac because they are corrupted by Satan. Yet Scripture says the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows forth his handiwork discover what each of the 12 signs of the zodiac relate in the story of Messiah, the serpent's demise and man's redemption.
